Is anyone else having trouble find these in the 5qt. jug? None of my local auto stores, big chain stores and even online stores like Amazon, Walmart, etc. seem to carry them. they are listed, but at check-out it says "out of stock". I can only find them in the qts. at $5.79 and never enough at one store to get all 5qts. I did called Pennzoil customer support and verified its still in production. Iím at a loss Ö

I ran this over the winter and have noticed that it is not stocked at my local WM anymore. Don't think O'Reilly had it when I stopped in to look for dexos2 oils the other day.

You're worried about this because its better than this with a $10 rebate from Pennzoil?

my engine has a strange history, this OCT I tried Pennzoil Platinum and noticed consumption, with only 6,500 miles on this oil, in the first 3k miles I added a qt. and now its down 1/4 on the dipstick. so I want to go back to the blend and yep, I did see the rebate offer ...

You know, with PUP and PP Euro L disappearing and T6 5W30 Multivehicle never making an appearance...this is a very apt comment.

wemay, QS made a big comeback at my local WM in both synths and semisynths after disappearing for a while. I do think they used to carry Mobil Super a long time ago and don't anymore...

I wonder how much impact there is if a retailer like Walmart decides to not stock it? Walmart is very quick to pull stock if it doesnít move. They have little tolerance for shelf space stagnancy and their formulas are the industry standards. I noticed several months ago that WM was thinning out their oil shelves. Three or four brands dominate now including their own Supertech. It doesnít leave much room for the sub category brands like Mobil Super or Pennzoil Gold.

Last time I checked my impression was that Supertech is gaining more shelf space as other brands go down or disappear.

Seems like WM is being amazingly patient with M1 AP...at least it is relegated to a small portion of a top shelf at my local WM now.

Iíve noticed that as well. One row of 0w20 and one row of 5w30. Valvolineís VME still has more space allotted but I would expect that to change as well in the near future. I did see that VME had jugs and quarts stocked while M1 AP was just jugs.

Hey guys Iíd like to apologize and retract my statement about my oil being down ľ on the dipstick after only 3,500 miles of use. At the end of last year we added an addition to our carport and it has minute slop. Since posting, iíve rechecked it on flat ground and oil level is perfect. Honestly wouldnít have guessed that it, so human error was at fault here. lol . Also, the first qt consumed at 3k miles was attributed to very hard driving and acceleration. Iíve owned 3 colorados since 2005 and put about 260k miles driven between them. with any hard driving, these Atlas motors tend to consume oil, at least the ones Iíve used (Mobil, Castrol, A/C Delco and Pennzoil). But for some reason in this motor with this oil, it consumed it quicker in a shorter time frame. I just wanted to clarify my statements. now which oil to use smile ...

One (1) 1-QT or one (1) 5-QT bottles of Pennzoil Ultra Platinumô Full Synthetic motor oil and earn $2 per quart.
One (1) 1-QT or one (1) 5-QT bottles of Pennzoil Platinumģ Full Synthetic motor oil and earn $2 per quart.
